It certainly looks good to see Colorado County and Columbus, and Her People in the Early 70s. By James Maket. After an absence of forty one years, the writer is a visitor to tbe scenes of some of his boyhood days in Columbus and Colorado county. In December, 1872, the family of George S. Maret, of Paint Lick, Kentucky, landed in Columbus, the writer being a member of the family. Mrs. Eliza Maret, the mother, was a sister of Judge George W. Smith, who came to Texas in the early 50's from Rockcastle county Ken lucky, where he was successful in the practice of law 'and was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas under the Con fed eracy. He wielded great influence for tbe interests dt county and state during the days of "car following 'the war. He died from Yellow Fever in i873, when large numbers of citizens at the county seat were laid down by that awful scourge. Judge Smith famished the money to build tbe first railroad .bridge cross Colorado river at Colum bus, when that point was tbe tei minus of the Sunset Route In those days all locomotives were named. The first one the writer observed on arrival at Harrisburg bore in ibex car letters the name of "Judge G.

"The citizens of the cities and towns are not expected and can not plant and produce these necessities, thus relying upon the farmers, and when both country and city people become competitive buyers in the open market for these products, it is no wonder that prices soar to the present unreasonable proportions. "The first duty the farmer owes to his family is the production of a sufficient amount of food products to sustain and feed the members of that household. This being done they are independent. Then conserve the products at hand. At this time there are many efforts being put forth to teach the need and advantage of conservation of home products. It is done through organized work, through bulletins and through teaching, and fortunate is the farmer who has learned this lesson of production and conservation. In this way he will be surprised to find to what an extent this larger production and caring for the surplus stock will mean in money in his pocket and sustenance to his fellow beings. j to increased development activity in the coal fields surrounding Whitesburg Two important in the near future. coal and timber land deals were closed during past week, the purchase of acres of rich, undeveloped properties lying west of here in Letcher and Knott counties, by the Letcher County Coal Corporation, of Richmond, Va., and of the Susan Osborn, S.

Part of the troops were drowned. Republican group. d bill.-talke- -- d Washington. President Wilson has informed the country in a statement that he may be without power to arm merchant ships and take other steps to meet the German submarine menace in the absence of authority from Congress. An extra session of Congress, the President says, is required to clothe him with authority, but it is useless to call one while the Senate works under the present rules which permit a small minority to keep au overwhelming majority from acting. The President proposes, therefore, that the special session of the Senate, which he has called, revise the rules "to supply the means of action and save the country from disaster." "A little group of willful men," says the President in his statement, "representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible." The President's statement in full follows: "The termination of the last session Congress by conof the stitutional elimination discloses a situation unparalleled in the history of the country, perhaps in the history of any modern government. In the immediate presence of a crisis fraught with possibilmore subtle and ities of national danger than any other country has known within the whole Sixty-fourth g Senate rule permitting unlimited debate gave a small minority opportunity to throttle the will of the majority.

At the same time the President au- i ators favored the passage of the Senate bill authorizing the President of the United States to arm American "The majority of United States Sen- merchant vessels, a similar bill hav-- , ing already passed the House by a ote of 403 to 13.

CHINA PROBABLY NEXT POWER TO ENTER WAR Rewards For Her Being Negotiated at Capitals of Allies Regarded As Certainty Break Will Come. Washington. Negotiations looking to Chinas entrance into the war against the Central Powers now are in progress at Peking and in all the Entente capitals, it was just learned here, and their success depends only upon the harmonizing of the rewards to China with the amount of demanded of her. It is regarded as practically certain that China will sever relations with Germany and declaration of war probably will follow if the Entente will guarantee satisfactory relaxation of the restrictions imposed upon the Eastern empire by the World powers after the Boxer troubles. Facts have been learned from official and diplomatic circles serve to clear up much of the obscurity which has overhung events in the far East in the past month. Occasional vague dispatches from China and references in the Reichstag to China's "abandonment of neutrality" have thrown only dim light upon Germany's endeavor to keep China out of the struggle, the Entente's moves to bring her in and China's reluctance to change her present state of peace without adequate guar antees. - China desires to procure the complete remission of the Boxer indemnities, which total more than $30,000,000 a year, and continue until 1940. If she entered the war, the part which otherwise would be paid to Austria and Germany could be repudiated Thirteen Senators declined to sign the declaration, but one of them.

Two years ago, when corn was 60 cents and alfalfa hay $8. gains on lambs cost $4.S8 per hundred. Last year with feed at the same price, lambs fed heavily on corn made gains at $3.53 per hundred, and those receiving a medium feed of corn made gains costing $4.90 per hundred. As corn will probably bring 70 cents and alfalfa hay $10 this winter, it is likely gains will cost upwards of six cents a pound. Consequently, a margin between buying and selling price should mean a chance for profit to the careful feeder who gets satisfactory gains. 50-ce- nt Many letters are beiug received at the Nebraska experiment station ask-iug whether or not it is profitable to feed lambs at the present high prion of feeders.

FODDER IS NOT SUFFICIENT Cannot Be Depended Upon Alone to Carry Stock Through Winter to Best Advantage. Good shock fodder is food roughage to carry stock cattle in winter, but alone It is not sufficient. If you have some thrifty shotes to follow the cattle, feed broken ear corn. This pays better than to grind the feed and use corn and cob iqenl. Experiments at the Illinois station show that broken ear corn is practically as good as corn and cob meal from the standpoint of beef production, while hogs following cattle thus fed, make three to four times as much gain as those following cattle getting corn and cob meal. It will pay to use a little purchased feed such as cottonseed meal, even at relatively high prices. Don't depend on corn fodder and corn alone to carry your stock cattle to best advantage.
